Menu for Vice President Xi

Soup's On: Iowa Governor Terry Branstad let out a few of the details earlier this week, but this morning his staff released the full menu for the state dinner tonight at the Iowa Statehouse with Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping. The menu is all Iowa. It includes bacon, corn and beans, of course. 650 people on the invite list, according to the gov's office. That includes state lawmakers, Iowa business and community leaders and Xi's 160-person delegation.
